Portugal Day 2

Another beautiful day in Portugal.  We took the bus from Tomar to Coimbra and are about to go to the huge welcoming ceremony of the Freshman Class to the University de Coimbra!  More about that tomorrow!   What a great city.  The pics below are of the day's  travels.  First Fatima....

The sight of the visitation of Mary to the children is now a church.  Inside this church are the burial vaults of this children

A beautiful statue of Christ adorns the entrance of the cathedral...

Burial vault

Prayerful reflection...  Me too.

Francisco and Lucia aged 9 and 10 were visited in Fatima by the Blessed Virgin Mary, or Theotokos on the 13th of May 1917.

I lit a candle for NLO and  JRO and my dear sister and her family. More prayers, and a few tears.

Amazing statuary of the children as you enter Fatima. 
A touching day for me.  I hope all enjoy the pics,
